Application Persona

About the Webinar

"That girl is going to be president someday!"
"That boy is the next Bill gates!”
"She's a world-class pianist and a brilliant scientist!"

Whether from bragging parents or school newspaper articles, we are all familiar with the phrases used to characterize people and give a quick snapshot of their personalities. College admissions officers often rely on the same quick summations when characterizing students they are reviewing.

In this webinar, you will learn how you can essentially craft this sentence for an admissions committee—by creating a clear theme that appears consistently throughout your application. It is impossible to sum up seventeen years of your life in a college application, so the theme helps focus admissions officers on the key points about you: what makes you unique and why you would be a great addition to their school.

Your application should have such a strong and consistent theme that a total stranger could read your application and immediately write an enthusiastic sentence describing you. If you can craft such a strong theme, and your grades and test scores match those of the schools on his list, then there is a better than 50 percent chance that you will be admitted. Because the theme needs to be present in every part of the application, I like to say that all roads of the college application process lead to and from the theme.

This webinar will include:
- Tips to craft a consistent application narrative
- The critical factors in standing out among competitive candidates
- Case studies of successful applicants’ themes
